Poem – No Ending

Wrote this a few weeks ago – think it nicely covers what’s been wearing me down so much! I think other teachers might understand this during the build up to exam season.

 

No Ending

Exhaustion sucks you dry.

Caffeine perks and jitters,
Drugs race through the nervous
system.

Pink eyes gape,
Masks of parched-mouthed smiles.
Limbs erratic.

Inevitably slumber
Creeps up
Dragging you into
Fitful
Guilty

Rest.
